Interesting research that explains why the ancient amphitheater at Epidaurus, 
Greece, has such good acoustics.  The corrugated surface of the stone seating 
acts as a natural low cut filter.

The research was performed by Nico Declercq and colleagues from the Georgia 
(USA) Institute of Technology, and published in 2007 in the journal Canadian 

"While a picture is worth a thousand words, a 
sound is worth a thousand pictures." R. Murray Schafer via Bernie Krause.
